How does it work?

From a computer:

Visit our Print From Anywhere portal, here. Upload a document from your personal computer or device. You can even print directly from a web page! Be prepared to provide your email address to library staff, in order that they may obtain your document at the Library printing facility and deliver your documents curbside. You will have 72 hours to retrieve your print job.

If you want to print more than one copy, there is an option to do so after you upload your document to the Print from Anywhere Portal.

It may take anywhere from 5-10 minutes for your print job to reach the library. You can call 518-285-0050 to confirm receipt of your print job.

 

From the app:

  1. Download the PrinterON app (links below – see “Print from Anywhere is an App!” ) and tap “Select Printer” on the bottom of your screen. Tap “Location” on the bottom of your screen to find the Guilderland Public Library, as well as other nearby libraries. If you do not enable location services, you can type in “Guilderland Public Library”.
  2. Select your printing preferences (ex: black and white, double sided, color), and upload your documents. On the “Preview” page, select the green PRINT button.
  3. You will then be asked to type in your email address. Lastly, you must tap the check mark in the upper right corner of the screen to send your print job to the printer. The app will tell you if the print job has “started”. You will get a green success message or a red error message if the print job did not go through. You have 72 hours to retrieve your print job. If you want to print more than one copy, you will have to send the job multiple times. Be prepared to provide your email address to library staff, in order that they may obtain your document at the Library printing facility and deliver your documents curbside.

It may take anywhere from 5-10 minutes for your print job to reach the library. You can call 518-285-0050 to confirm receipt of your print job.
